LAW 5805 - Community and Economic Development Clinic

Clinic students will provide transactional assistance to nonprofits, community-based organizations, and micro-enterprises in low-income communities in and around Nassau County, with a focus on choosing clients that will increase social and economic justice in the target communities. The clients will include newly-forming organizations with start-up issues (such as choice of entity, incorporation, tax matters, governance structures and regulatory compliance) and more mature organizations that need help with the more complex issues that arise in connection with organizational success and growth. Students will learn the lawyering skills necessary to assist our clients to achieve their organizational goals and maximize their community impact. To do so, students will conduct interviews to determine client needs, counsel clients, negotiate and draft contracts and other agreements, draft documents and represent clients in oral and written communications with government agencies and other organizations. The Clinic will also emphasize the special ethical issues arising from the representation of groups.
